Leingarten-based tuning company JE Design has released a range of options for the SEAT Leon FR.
The aero package is constructed from carbon-look plastic and comprises of a front spoiler, side skirts and rear diffuser section with aperture for twin-double tailpipes attached to the new stainless steel muffler. A roof-level tailgate wing completes the body program.
The company’s sport spring kit provides a drop of 30 mm, but owners with deeper pockets can specify a KW coilover system, which is adjustable for rebound and compression-damping and takes the hatchback down by as much as 65 mm. A range of wheel and tyre packages are also available in 18 and 19-inch diameters.
Under the hood, JE applies its own ECU software to the 1.8-litre TSI unit, which sees output rise from 132 kW (180 hp) and 250 Nm of torque to 158 kW (215 hp) and 300 Nm, meaning the 0-100 km/h is reduced from 7.5 seconds to 6.9s, while top speed is raised from 226 km/h to 235 km/h.
